You are using ELF-only assembler pseudo-ops in an COFF/PE based toolchain.

.type and .size are only supported on ELF based targets.  (Well, when 
they are used in this particular fashion anyway).

The COFF .section directive has a different syntax, and there are more 
restrictions on the characters allowed in section names.
